Seeing this film made me go to the library to read Coffin's autobiography. It is sad that heroes like John Fairfield have been largely denied to history by narrow-minded gatekeepers who felt that some love ought not be allowed to speak its own name. Some of that is changing, albeit far too slowly. Even here, with Disney funding, some OGHP (offensive gratuitous heterosexist propaganda) had to be inserted. However, this is my favourite film. Larry B. Scott and Robert Caradine are perfectly cast. The dedication line in the end credits (with dates of birth and death) is quite telling. We look forward to a time when such flying under the radar need no longer be necessary.
